Police complaint against Mamata Banerjee
Complaint said, "On December 1, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had attacked Indian Army in an unprecedented manner."
Intensifying the verbal war between BJP and West Bengal's Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, a West Bengal BJP worker on Tuesday lodged a complaint against Chief Minister for her statements against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian Army.
Reports have said that Police advised BJP worker Manav Sharma to email the complaint to the city police commissioner, instead of lodging the complaint at Jorasanko thana in central Kolkata.
His complaint said, "On December 1, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had attacked Indian Army in an unprecedented manner.
She maligned the image of Indian Army, wilfully with nefarious political motives, through uncorroborated allegations and baseless insinuations. She alleged that Indian Army was 'colluding and conspiring' against her government. It is a serious attempt to misinform public."
It is to be noted that Banerjee was relatively displeased and angered by the deployment of army personnel at toll plazas on National Highways in the state, and on December 1 had accused Modi government of imposing an undeclared emergency.
The complaint further said, "On various occasions, Banerjee denounced the post of Prime Minister of India with baseless insinuations and even threatened him with dire consequences. We therefore ask you to treat this complaint as FIR against her and take strictest legal actions."
